Season 2

The River is a South African telenovela revolving around communities on two different sides of a river: society's upper crust in exquisite mansions who will go to any lengths to maintain their wealth, and the exploited "common folk" who constantly toil with little to show for it.

Last season we saw how Tumi, her family and the wider Refilwe community were drawn into a web of lies and turmoil by Lindiwe Dlamini, who murdered, destroyed households and manipulated, continually evading justice.

Will the scales of morality tip in the favour of those Lindiwe has wronged in her ruthless quest to build a blood-drenched empire?

Will this mark the end of the villainous boss lady, as she battles for her life amid her legacy crumbling, or will the bonds of family prove stronger than Lindiwe's transgressions?

This season we'll also find out if Tumi will lead the Refilwe rebellion to ensure that Lindiwe gets her day of reckoning. With mounting evidence against Lindiwe and co., will this be the final nail in the coffin sealing her fate, or will she prove to have more tricks up her sleeve and define the odds?

And will a community torn apart by greed and violence finally rebuild and restore what was lost?

The series stars Presley Chweneyagae, Sindi Dlathu, Hlomla Dandala, Lawrence Maleka, Lunga Shabalala, Moshidi Motshegwa and newcomer Larona Moagi.

The River is an M-Net Original Production created and executive produced by Gwydion Beynon and Phathutshedzo Makwarela, for Tshedza Pictures. The duo are also the head writers. The supervising producers are Shona Ferguson and Connie Ferguson. Music is by Brendan Jury.
